Manchester City :
The last three results: 2: 1 vs. AFC Bournemouth, 1: 1; FC Everton, 2-0. Brighton & Hove Albion
Even though it was not an outstanding season, the SkyBlues experienced a performance that would have satisfied Pep Guardiola at least. Against Brighton and Bournemouth, both deep and unpleasant opponents, the team drove important compulsory victories, the importance of which can not be overestimated on the way to a possible championship.
Against Everton, City had a long time before Raheem Sterling scored the deserved equalizer in the final phase and still secured a point for his team. This achievement will not be fully satisfied with the successful Citizens, but this point may still be useful, especially as Everton is the strongest opponent outside the Top Six this season.
Thus the first interim result for Peps second season in the Emirates is positive. The team has won a lot of Firepower, has excellent game material on all positions and has a coach who is currently the best of the planet. It will probably be a few weeks and months before the team has completely internalized its philosophy, but already this city is a team with which the title fight is definitely to be expected. One can be curious to see whether the Sheikh-Club of this assessment also against Liverpoool justice.

The offensive is qualitatively overloaded, there pep so far strongly through. In the row of defense, on the other hand, the squares already seem to be firmly committed, among others to 50-million-man Kyle Walker.
Ederson – Company, Stones, Otamendi – Fernandinho, Walker, De Bruyne, Silva, Danilo – Agüero, Gabriel Jesus
The last three results: 4-0. FC Arsenal, 4-2. TSG 1899 Hoffenheim, 1: 0 vs. the team Crystal Palace
Four victories from the first five games, as well as a draw: the season start of Liverpool can be quite impressive. The team of Jürgen Klopp has so far been particularly aggressive with an extremely playful and powerful series of attacks, which makes Klopp’s renouncement of the changeable Philippe Couthino so far hardly noticeable. Especially Sadio Mané shows an impressive early form, also new entry Salah is more and more in step.
And then there is Emre Can. After the German national player had to compete for his first place in the first two years on the Anfield Road, the tough midfielder is absolutely set in the current season – right: his physique and two-team strength give the team important stability, at the same time he is also technically and passable enough to revive the attack of his Reds. In addition, the German-Turk has discovered his goal danger in the past weeks: Can with the 4-0 win against Arsenal Can met twice.
Keyword Kantersieg: Against Arsenal the Reds delivered a game that was damn close to the perfect football. Offensive, the Klopp elite with exceptionally high dynamic and force, the Gunners had nothing to counter. And defensively the coordination and two-player behavior was clearly more harmonious than in the weeks before. At this early stage, Liverpool is undoubtedly among the strongest teams in the league. From the German point of view one can look forward to it.
Although Jürgen Klopp has not a completely emptied injured bank like his opposite Guardiola, but also in Liverpool the disability list has significantly reduced: Only Nathaniel Clyne and Adam Lallana fall out, as well as replacement goalkeeper Adam Bogdan. But this is nothing new, so that Klopp against City probably will start the same start-up as last against Arsenal:
Mignolet-Gomez, J. Matip, Lovren, Alberto Moreno-Can, J. Henderson, Wijnaldum-M. Salah, Roberto Firmino, S. Mané
